I got to walk Buddy to school this am because the nanny had a doctor's appointment, and because I was planning to attend her school assembly! 

Because she's on the honor roll! I'm so glad she's doing well in school and such a proud mom.

 Although, I did learn there is something called the "principal's honor roll," so I'm just saying I think she ought to aim higher. 


Just kidding. Congrats to my little buddy who I love so much and am so proud of. 

way back wednesday!

Look at these three looking at the holiday lights in brooklyn!!

Looking back at 2018

I was looking for an old blog post to model this one after, and I found this little gem. I can't believe what interesting stuff we use to do on a random March weekend.

ten miles

Because the weather is finally better, Babe and I can resume our walking ridiculous distances on the weekend for no apparent reason.

This weekend we did ten miles as planned. And then went as follows:

On Friday night, we did two miles as we walked from our place on 44th and 9th to Lincoln Center to check out the Opera. We saw Madama Butterfly at the NYC Opera. Pretty neat stuff, and the opera house is beautiful and the opera was sad and sad.

Then we walked home. Stopped at a few great places on the way, such as the Hudson Hotel for a fancy drink then Vintage and the Film Center Cafe for a couple more. Oh yeah and Lucky Burgerwhich we can talk more about later.

That was two miles.

Saturday, we walked up to 77 (44 - 77 = 1.5 miles) then watched Zodiac at the Upper West Side theater. Then walked home.

That was three miles.

Yesterday we had to do five miles in one day so opted to walk to the Lower East Side/Chinatown to check out Fried Dumpling, where two people can have lunch for five dollars. That was about 4 miles, then we walked back up to Astor Place and took the subway home.

That was five miles.

Weekend Pics, one day late

We chilled so hard this past weekend. We all were getting over colds. Buddy had soccer two days because of the playoffs. We had the CAL game to watch on TV. We did have our cutie friends over for dinner and holiday merriment. If I was going to grade this weekend I would give it an A. 

At the library reading stories. 

Penalty Kicks! 

Playing while we watch CAL lose. Again. 

Crazy tree decorating faces. 

We are doing a toiletry drive to create shower kits for the Downtown Women's Center! These are all collected from the woman who live in our neighborhood! 

I took my princess to my favorite store, Michaels. 


Eating pretend cookies like good guests do.
